More Qs - this time F3-800

Ok. Struggling to find a *decent* F3-675 that is near to me.


Anyways, I have found a 2015 F3-800 with 1200 miles on the clock relatively close to me.

Does anyone have experience of both the 675 and the 800?

I was after the 675 over the 800 because I enjoy the "rev the tits off of it" on my RVF400. I am used to bigger bikes - I had a '98 R1 for 17yrs...so it isn't like I'm a newb going from a 400 to an ultra modern 800.

But anyways - 675 vs 800?
Comments please. Is there *that* much more power?

i could understand if you just wanted a race or trackbike but if its for the road as main use i would go 800
I have several bikes including 250 and 400 2 strokes aswell as R6 so i am used to all the various reving engines.
you really need to test them both to see which hits ya button

I (test) rode both, the 675 and the 800 and chose to buy the 800, it is simply the better bike, especially if you compare the older ones (2013 and 2014 675 still have the weaker brakes, the 800 always came with monoblocs)

First F3 was the 675 in 2012 covered over 11000 miles, then the F3 800 in 2014, this time 8000 miles, finally this year the F3 800RCr, over 3000 todate.

The 800 has far more mid-range power and without doubt easier to ride through towns

Thanks guys. The 800 is perhaps starting to make more sense.

I now have a couple of options near to me - depends if the dealers will move on price.

Is it true that the F3-800 has a built in immobiliser? If so, is it key/rfid based?

Thanks.
